UAAP Season 77 Judo Championships Men’s Results and Recap

Published

on

The UAAP judo championship tournament format is different compared to the majority of the league.

Since 2005, the judo tournament does not employ the team round-robin format. Instead, UAAP Judo utilizes a bracket system wherein each judoka placement in a bracket is based on seeding. Moreover, judokas coming from the same school are seeded away from each other in the earlier stages of the tournament. Finally, fallen judokas from the earlier rounds can still compete for a bronze medal. The fallen judokas from the earlier matches are moved to another bracket that culminates to the 2 bronze medal matches.

Here we take a look at the men’s judo tournament for the 77th Season of the UAAP:

 


 

Men’s Heavyweight (+100 kg) Division

The number of judokas in this division is set at five. In this format, UST’s Kazuki Masaoka and ADMU’s Matthew Simon Jao, competed in the 1st bracket while UPD’s Luis Benigno Agustin & Brian Dominic Azarcon and ADMU’s Rafael Cadiente competed in a round-robin style tournament in the 2nd pool.
